Large Horse RugsBig horse blankets
The Optimo Rombo
You can get a horse in all size. Fortunately, horse rugs do, too. When your horse has a wide breast with a bigger body, you need a ceiling incision to have more space in the breast and more length on the sides than the normal horse mantle. Rambo Split technology provides maximum mobility with an ultra high spandrel that gives the big horse additional room to move.
One of our clients, who owns well-built Friesians, says that this rug offers "a lot of motion for my larger horses". You can also use an Amigo Chest Extension to complete any Amigo Turnout. It offers additional space for lower lying mounts by "opening" the front a few centimetres.

Carpets for large ponies
Sturdy carpets I look at the JHL light weight carpet or the Mark Todd quilt carpet. The JHL medium-weight switch carpet I can only find one. I have a JHL leaf that suits me but hasn't tried any of the other carpets. Anybody got those rugs?
You think they could sit on a big, far draft horse?
